Interesting question...there has been a great deal of speculation about the influence of low frequency sounds/vibrations on various life forms, but to be honest, not sure how much "scientific" evidence there is. The repetition of soothing, low frequency words or sounds, like "Ommmm", and such, can certainly aid in relaxtion...now, if your question was more tongue in cheek, along the lines of just not liking it (decrease?) or liking it (increase?), not sure bout that either. As a resident scientifically inclined Forumite, I suppose you were hoping for more from me, but sorry to disappoint. I did receive one of those little 45 sized samplers of Seastones way back in the day (mid 70s) as a full fledged Christmas Card rec'ing member of the Dead Heads, but at the time all I could think was "hmmm, I am not sure this whole hiatus thing is working out".

That's all I got for you this fine Saturday night; taking a break from Rush/Cream considerations, and a bit of work if you can believe it...

Right back at ya big guy! And to the fam as well; think you saw Ashes is back now and again, and the Forum's always a nicer place for that...Arb is well last we spoke, so that about covers four of us four year olds (well, four yrs or so together on the Forum that is).

Love you too Ian; have a great Sunday and I'll post/email you some of those cactus flowers that'll be blooming with our warm weather--just as soon as they make their appearance (I just wish I could do them the justice you could!).

Oh I can believe it. I'm working right now. Got a Monday am deadline and I'm under the gun. I just realized I don't understand that line. In front of the gun I could buy. Oh well.

BTW Jerry was a much better guitarist than Eric. The endless imagination-the fluidity in so many outrageously different styles-the incredible gift of melody. The only thing he really didn't have was the Chicago blues bit. Jamming was in the air in the early 70s and Eric was part of it as Derek. If you want to hear Eric do his Dead, check out the live Derek disc that they released. No contest. This is, as always, a big IMO.

"Jerry was a much better guitarist than Eric"

that would depend upon whether you are referring to an improvisational ability or pure technical ability. Eric is by far a more polished player, though, as you said, not as "imaginative" in an exploratory arena. Garcia was (or atleast became) a very very sloppy player whose technique never did rival some of the best in the business. I dont think it was his intent to be "the best" - just the best at being himself. Stack him up against people like Wes Montogemery, and it is like a child playing with men. The list of better techinical players could go on and on and on...

Oh trust me, over the years, I have come to regard Jerry as "top five" pure and simple (this was never possible in the 70s and 80s with all the guitar players I would speak to...they would laugh at the notion and it inhibited me, seriously).

But, listening to these early CREAM shows, live, and watching the vids, I think that Eric does a bit more than we gave him credit for, if you follow...I do think, as I've always said, CREAM owed as much if not more to JBr and GBak, but just don't tell JOTS...

Anyhow, ironically, having always assumed EClap was so great, without really thinking it (ie, me during the 60s and 70s), once I finally got old enough and listened to enough 68 to say with confidence to my guitar playing friends "JErry is BEST!" I've now come back to looking more closely at ECl and like him even more, and am just not sure I am buying the "he was limited" and such, or "just technically proficient"...

In a way, it's doubly ironic cause I find myself here defending EC in the same way I used to defend JG ("he's not just a noodling, drugged out experimentalist!").

Great expanding my horizons on this old stuff though...

methinks we need a Led Zep vs Dead thread next Mr Prime Minister. I believe Zep is the metal (hard rock, whatever) version of the Dead and Page is in the same mold as Jerry.

Hope you enjoyed those Rush clips. Believe it or not I like the early years best!

Defn better than the hits! The radio stuff was all I knew...not exactly my cup of tea, I must admit, but much better players than I was aware...the main singer doesn't do much for me, but I nit pick. Thanks again for the help.

And, I think we'd really tip the "apples vs oranges" cart over if I suggested LZ vs DEAD...I nearly got creamed for it on the last one...har, har--whoops! Never should've tried that pun out here...
